So following in the footsteps of various iterations, including the Turbo S, the S E-Hybrid and long-wheelbase Exclusive, Porsche is rolling out three new additions, with more standard equipment and tweaked styling aimed at both the Western and Asian markets.

Porsche ups the ante with new Panamera S E-Hybrid

By - April 22, 2013 28 Pictures
Making its debut at the Shanghai Auto Show, Porsche's new Panamera S E-Hybrid stood front and center, metaphorically at least, among its Panamera siblings: a now nine-strong lineup, refreshed for 2014. The Panamera S E-Hybrid differentiates itself from its predecessor, the plain 'ol Panamera S Hybrid, with a much-improved battery and electric motor. Performance-wise, the S E-Hybrid is no slouch, hitting 60 mph (97 km/h) from a standstill in 5.2 seconds, and nudging 167 mph (269 km/h) at top speed. Read More

Handsome Porsche Panamera Sport Tourismo concept unveiled

By - September 27, 2012 13 Pictures
For a time it seemed as though Porsche could only design 911's. The range-expanding For a time it seemed as though Porsche could only design 911's. The range-expanding Boxster, Cayenne and particularly Panamera models were great cars of course, but good-looking? Absolutely not. They resembled squished and stretched distortions of the somewhat limited 911 design vocabulary. No longer. Both the Cayenne and the Boxster have emerged from a series of updates as coherent designs with their own individual style and if the concept car just revealed at the Paris Motor Show is anything to go by, it is time for the seriously ugly Panamera to mutate into the handsome Grand Tourer it should always have been.

By - February 17, 2011 7 Pictures

Porsche releases technical innovations on new 4-door Panamera luxury sportster

By - March 19, 2009 13 Pictures
Porsche's 4-door Panamera will be finally unveiled at the Shanghai Motor Show on April 20 - not that we haven't already had plenty of chances to take a good look at it through the company's prolific PR department. Designed to be at once more luxurious than an S-Class Benz and sportier than a Beemer M5, the Panamera is the first 4-door Porsche with an uncompromising performance focus. It looks like a belter too, considering rumors that the 500-horsepower, US$132,600 turbo model actually had to be reined back in performance terms just so it wouldn't trouser the 911, which is supposed to be Porsche's performance flagship. As a brand new, extreme high end model, you'd be expecting the Panamera to pack a few technological punches - and you'd be right. Here's a few of the key innovations. Read More
